Step 5) Cool all the ingredients completely before grinding. Once they are cooled completely transfer all the roasted ingredients to a blender and grind.Once they are half done add asafoetida and turmeric powder and again grind it to a very fine powder.If you have whole asafoetida then roast for few seconds after turning off the heat and then grind.
